“Great Price for a Great Room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

So glad we chose to stay here. It was our (my husband and I) first time in NYC and we were a little weary of staying outside the city, however we couldn't afford anything in Manhattan. We chose the Best Wester Plaza and were pleasantly surprised by the space and cleanliness of the room. There is a subway within walking distance and the staff is more than happy to tell you how to get to anywhere you want to go. If you drive there be weary that parking is $25 a day and very limited, so come early if you drive. Also, the breakfast lounge is small, so expect a crowd in the am. Gad we chose to stay here! If we go back this will be on our list for sure.

Rooms were clean. Staff was pleasant. When asked front desk to acquire a taxi cab to convey us to airport they called an individual instead of the NYC Taxi Cab service. Was not pleased with the taxi cab experience. Breakfast was not very good. Everything else was good.

You stay at this hotel for 2 reasons only:
Price, by NYC standards it is reasonable.
It is very close to the subway, and has excellent great access to NYC. In fact my best time was 20 minutes from my room on the 2nd floor to inside Macy's on 34th St.
Breakfast was a bun fight. Finding somewhere to sit was sometimes impossible. Other meals were "difficult" unavailable. But venturing outside will find a couple of quite good takeaways that the locals frequent.
There is no bar in the hotel, but beer can be bought at the corner shop.
All staff were excellent including reception, room ladies, and breakfast crew.
For me the hotel provided what I needed. Nothing more nothing less.

It is the price , the hotel totally renovated , new room furniture , good enough and clean , the location is not close to city center you need to use underground (metro) which very close to the hotel the area is not that good but still safe even at night with family . the check in is very late (3 PM ) but you can keep your luggage before check in or after check out free of charge the breakfast area is small and very basic American breakfast included in the room price, small fridge in the room which is good (no minibar). overall good even for 6 nights

For a New York hotel the price is really low, the location is pretty good (not on Manhattan, but you are on Times Square in about 15 minutes, subway entrance is a really short walk from the hotel). The room was nice and clean. The beds were great. The complimentary breakfast was great too. However, several times we arrived back at the hotel late afternoon and the room wasn't done yet. After the first time we asked to get the room done before 2 pm, but it took 3 times asking before they finally managed to clean the room before that time. Overall the hotel was nice and the staff was very friendly and I would recommend it for a New York stay if you are not planning to rest a bit in a clean room in the early afternoon.

The staff at this hotel is amazing and friendly and the beds are very comfy. We chose the hotel bc it was the closest hotel to the subway in Long Island City -the F line which was only 4 stops into the city. Ideally I would have preferred to stay in manhattan, however I didn't want to fork over the additional $100 a night to do so! We felt very safe walking back and forth from the subway to the hotel and happy to see the night patrol officer that stood out front at night. If you want to grab a quick - and free- breakfast, make sure you do so early or plan to take it back to your room as the breakfast area is small. Our room had a refrigerator so we grabbed extra yogurt and fruit to keep on hand for a snack. I would recommend this hotel to those in a large group or to those familiar with getting around NYC. If its your first visit to the city and you plan to return to your room throughout the day, you are better off spending the extra money to stay in the city.

Reasonably good hotel for the given price. Check in was smooth and fast. Actually checked in a couple of hours before check in time and there was no waiting time. Hotel premises neat and clean. We stayed in kings suite. Room was big enough to accommodate an extra bed. Carpet in the room and linen in good condition. 40 " TV with 24 US channels. View from room located in front side of hotel not great. Bath room in good condition. Very neat and clean. Towels are in acceptable condition. Hotel close to F line metro. Did not find it safe to walk outside after dark as the area around the hotel is not very upmarket. Service is not exactly great as we had to ask two or three times for any requirement. Breakfast was just about adequate with not much choice. Wifi was free and fast .

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view of manhattan
